The circle, never gets old for me. It’s incredibly versatile for movement, and just is – the perfect shape. When designing for motion, I find giving the animator “enough to work with” is the trick. In static form, the artwork alone may determine the composition, but when in motion – framing, movement, and artwork, all are key. Here are a few snapshots of a graphic system that was developed for an animated corporate internal video.
I’m sure plug-ins could make my life easier, and faster, and all that good stuff – but sometimes I feel like I’m on such a time crunch, that find the perfect one and learning to manipulate it, may take longer than manually doing whatever I was trying to do in the first place. I guess, being knowledgeable of what is available to me, before I need it…would solve this issue.
And with that, I attended an Adobe event with Astute Graphics, plug-ins for Illustrator. Of the few featured, the ones that piqued my interest were Phantasm and VectorScribe. Basically you wonder why basic Photoshop color functions are not included in Illustrator (Phantasm) and, why is it so difficult to create rounded corners on vector graphics (VectorScribe)…well, life can be easier, my friends. Let’s live easy. Check out their site for other fun, useful tools.
MTV K Presents B.A.P. Live in NYC | B.A.P. is a rookie korean-pop group, consisting of six members and an incredible international fan base. On May 15th at the iconic MTV Studios in Times Square, MTV K presented a live stream show that aired on mtvk.com. As a member of the crew, I had the opportunity to witness the set-up and rehearsal, and as the show approached, the massive crowd gathering outside, was rather, intense. (I do realize they were not there to see me..Haha!) Here are a few iPhone shots of the day. Full Creative post to come!
Sometimes, a visual “concept” is the solution for clients that need to “brand” their content, but tailor their messaging. This is a campaign system, that allows for specific headline structure, and visual style while maintaining a cohesive look, regardless of the subject matter.
Thank you, I love you too.
